iOS 5 is coming in a few months

Given that iOS 5 is already announced for this fall, does that mean this book's lifespan is only 4 months? How much content is iOS 4 framework-specific, vs teaching Objective-C as a language?

Of course this book is so valid when iOS 5 is out.
iOS 5 isn't iOS being written from the scratch, it is built upon iOS 4. You can check what is new in iOS 5 and learn them by yourself, shouldn't be that difficult.

There won't be major change in the APIs between iOS 4 & iOS 5. Framework may get new APIs or existing APIs may get changed, but chances for version specific framework are so less.
I am working since when iOS 2.2 in the market. I have never face major difficulties due to API differences.

Happy coding

Have a look at the new features of iOS5 here http://developer.apple.com/technologies/ios5/.

You need to get your hands dirty with iOS SDK in general before you can use these new apis. This book will be useful not only for a new comer, but also for an experienced developer.
